This WDB job fair is a great example of this and it will be held at our iconic ‘Old Airport’ at ONT,” said Curt Hagman, Vice Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
Tony Myrell, Chairman of the Workforce Development Board, said job fairs such as this, are one of several ways the WDB connects businesses with a skilled labor force.
“Our mission at WDB is to support a strong, vibrant economy by encouraging business growth and creating job opportunities. Hosting these job fairs is just one example of the many resources made available to both the business community and to individuals,” Myrell said.
